if we had listened to our bones
What do you know, down deep in your bones? What could have happened if you had listened to your bone-deep wisdom? What might happen if you listen now?
What do we know as a people, a community, a planetary system, in our “bones?” I asked this on Climate March day, and this painting emerged. What could have happened if we had listened to what we know, down deep, is good for our children, our neighbors, our bodies, our ecosystem, and all the life with whom we share our Earth? What harm might we have avoided?
What might we listen to now, and what might still be possible?
